I

They say fear
is a strange thing

(tones ragged, low,

on the lips),


once in ink
and once in speech:
grey, and black,
and somewhat

lost.




One of those things
we cannot but
properly misunderstand,
misplace—

all guesses, all mere
hollow thoughts without that
room for slight correctness
based on not-facts,

(and self-morals—
false, perhaps?—)

and nothing

else.


II

You have never
understood fear—
(that odd,

ambiguous thing.)



But at times you wonder
if it is that which comes
to an all-snagged falling

into

the not-known

(all turning, all black—)

rancid, grey, large,
in your dreams.

—you wonder
if it is this feeling

(cold, lingering)



on your back,
on your skin;

that slight prickle
on your arm, all-
lifting thing—that
rancid,acid breathing

(its)—


on you.
